To enrich the understanding of our community identity, to shape and embrace a harmonious society. 

Our Mission

As a museum, we preserve and present Chinese culture and Australian history,  to recognize and celebrate the identity of Chinese Australian people.

The Chinese Museum plays an important role in preserving the heritage of Australians with Chinese ancestry for future generations and to acknowledge the contribution they have made to the evolution of Australian society over the past 200 years to the current day. 

The Chinese Community in Australia

We are individual yet collective, diverse yet directional, on a weaving journey like that of a dragon. The tail began our journey. The head is the current day looking forward. The scales are our individual and collective journeys. The various colours represent our origins and diversity.
